Teen’s dream comes true - co-writes a book with Walter Dean Meyers

There was the coolest story in School Library Journal that begins, “Three-and-half years ago, a 13-year-old fan named Ross Workman sent an email to his favorite author, Walter Dean Myers. Four hours later, Myers did something he'd never done before—he invited the teen to co-write a book.”

Do you think it’s weird that I am somewhat jealous of Ross? I loved books and authors so much when I was a kid, and I even used to write to them (back when you sent a physical letter in care of the publisher and then crossed your fingers). To have one offer to write a book with me - words fail me....
